Happy Memories - Belinda

Technique - Use your Chipboard as a Mask.

There are so many mediums to use on the market today and mists are one of my favourites. For this technique focus I decided to use my chipboard as a mask on patterned paper. I love the look of other shapes on the page and this is a subtle way too add interest and you get to keep the chipboard for another projects.

I always use a pizza box to spray in to protect my carpet and surrounding items.
Place the chip board on the paper and spray evenly all around the project. Lift off carefully and allow to dry.

On this project I have used the following items as a mask
Family Symbols

and I have used these pieces of 2 Crafty chipboard on my project.
Bag of 2010s
Moroccan border
The Glimmermist colour I have used is Scarlet.
Another great idea is to spray your chipboard over cardstock, and you can use the cardstock on another project.

thanks Belinda x
